    Patong Bag Snatchers Didn't Get Very Far

    By Sert Tongdee
    Thursday, January 6, 2011

    TWO thieves snatched the bag of a Russian tourist as she walked along Patong beach last night about 8.15pm.

    But the robbers did not get very far. Visitor Katya Galeeva, 28, yelled loudly and the two bag-snatchers were apprehended within minutes.

    At Kathu Police Station, Abdulgorde Moogor, 21, and Santad Mae-ngae, 20, confessed. The pair told police they had come from Pattani in Thailand's South to have fun over New Year and found they lacked the money to get home.

    Ms Galeeva got back her bag, which contained baht and dollars, credit cards and a mobile telephone.
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    Is that Katya on the left? She has 3 mobiles? A very communicative young lass.
